The number of coronavirus cases in India are rising at a time when the country is preparing for 'Unlock 1.0' by allowing malls, restaurants, religious places and places of worship to reopen from Monday. However, a visit to the shopping malls, hotels and restaurants and religious places will no longer be the same like before the lockdown imposed on March 25 as the Health Ministry has issued standard operation procedures (SOPs) to contain the spread of the highly contegious infection in the country. The SOPs are advisory in nature and the Centre has left it to the states to finetune the details.
